New York, NY (PRWEB) September 20, 2013
Tash Perrin of Christie’s headlined the Ivy Family Office New York City, NY Trends in Family Offices Forum with a discussion on “Art Transaction Trends.” The Forum was held on September 10th in New York City, NY.
According to Ms. Perrin, “There are a wide variety of trends impacting Art Transactions today. Some trends include increased private sales and an e-commerce platform as a sale alternative. As a result, full service providers like Christie’s have a competitive advantage and central role in buying, selling and leveraging art work throughout the global marketplace.”
Judith Pearson of ARIS Title Insurance, another speaker on the panel commented “The value of art work and collectibles continue to rise in a favorable tax and regulatory environment. Yet as technology becomes more sophisticated, authentication and title become even more important criteria in the acquisition process. “
Other speakers on the panel included: Elizabeth von Habsburg of Winston Art Group and Frank Lord of Herrick Feinstein.
